California Gets "Paintcare" 10/19/12

California is following Oregon’s lead, and becoming the second state to implement “Paintcare”.  This is an industry leading paint recycle program.  Consumers and contractors will now be able to take leftover paint to designated paint stores and drop off their unwanted paint for free.  It really isn’t for free; we are all paying for it when we buy paint.  The fees range from .35 cents for less than a gallon to $1.60 per 5 gallon bucket.  These upfront fees paid at time of purchase will pay for the program.  Not every paint store will have drop-off available, so check first. Eventually there will be over 450 sites available state wide.

Products that are covered in the program are interior and exterior architectural paints: latex, acrylic, water-based, alkyd, oil-based, enamel (all types of finishes and sheens, including textured coatings), deck coatings, floor paints (including elastomeric), primers, sealers, under coaters, stains, shellacs, lacquers, varnishes, urethanes (single component), waterproofing concrete/masonry/wood sealers and repellents (not tar or bitumen-based), swimming pool paints (single component), metal coatings, rust preventatives, field and lawn paints

Products that are not covered in this program are Paint thinners, mineral spirits and solvents aerosol paints (spray cans), auto and marine paints, traffic and road marking paints. arts and crafts paints, caulking compounds, epoxies, glues and adhesives, paint additives, colorants, tints and resins, wood preservatives, roof patch and repair, tar and bitumen-based products, 2-component coatings, deck cleaners, industrial Maintenance (IM) coatings, original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) (shop application) paints and finishes.

All containers must be labeled, sealed tightly, and not leaking, or they will not accept them.  This is a great program that will help reduce the wasted paint left at many homes and businesses.  It comes at a cost, but the benefits outweigh the small expense.

Brooks did a fantastic job on our exterior and interior paint jobs. Quality was high, price was reasonable, and the team was extremely professional and detail-oriented. Mark was our crew lead and the team performed a number of exterior wood repairs, a door re-stain, interior and exterior painting. Mark clearly takes a lot of pride in his work and went above and beyond to ensure the work was high-quality, including finding exact matching siding to fix dry rot, and performing minor repairs that weren't even included in the quote. He and the team were all consistently positive and personable, joking with each other throughout the day, while also genuinely complimenting each other on the quality of their work. It was great to see, and that positivity definitely showed through the work they did. We couldn't be happier with the end result.

Brooks Painting painted our home in Sacramento in March of 2022. Tim did a great job power washing our home. Corey, Flint, and Kristen were very helpful in the bid and. planning. process. The painting crew was excellent. Arrived on time each day and the project was finished in 5 days as promised. All worked very hard.

I wanted to have my kitchen cabinets painted but knew that that was a job that required skill and expertise. I called Brooks Painting and the experience from start to finish was perfect! Everyone I dealt with was personable and good at their jobs. They spent time answering questions, explaining the exact process, and did the work precisely as promised. They even did a few other small jobs (repairing and painting 2 water damaged ceilings) to perfection. And everything was neat and clean when they left! And the cabinets – better than I could have hoped for. Esteban is a master craftsman who was meticulous in every aspect of his work. The finish is smooth as glass with no imperfections. I couldn’t be happier!

Very professional, I appreciate the time they took to make sure everything was taken care of for my house! I really liked that Jaime stepped up and told me not to paint my front door like the house and then chose a color that worked great. Thank you!

My experience with Brooks Painting has been outstanding, and, if it were an option on Google, I would assign 100 stars to their work. Mark and his crew were exceptional in painting both the inside and outside of my Central Davis home. They were considerate, careful, and respectful of my furnishings and yard. Kristen and her office staff were also responsive to my queries and were timely in scheduling the work. Thank you Brooks Painting for assisting in transforming my house into a beautiful home!

We are long time happy customers with many positive experiences with Brooks Painting. We have appreciated the assistance (and patience) with selecting paint colors, the professionalism of the staff and the high quality of workmanship. We recently had some interior painting done and the crew was on time, neat, careful inside the house and very easy to work with. They also cheerfully handled some unexpected drywall repair. I highly recommend Brooks Painting.

Listened to my needs and offered good suggestions. Customer confidence in value and quality.

Mark and the team from Brook’s Painting are exceptional at their jobs. We recently renovated a 5000sqft home and they did all the painting. Their attention to detail and investment in our project is so appreciated, and we knew we were in good hands with them. The value they add by identifying issues, making suggestions and going the extra mile to deliver quality work and make sure we are happy with our home is such a breath of fresh air. I would hire this team and company for any future work in a heartbeat and can’t say enough how amazing they are!
